2019 (1969-) Canadian $1 Equality 50th Anniv Loonie Dollar Coin (Brilliant Uncirculated)

 

Hold on to love

The Royal Canadian Mint issues the $1 Equality coin commemorating the 50th anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexuality in Canada.
Over the last five decades, Canada has made significant strides in becoming a more inclusive society, guided by a belief in diversity, equality for all and the right to live free from discrimination, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression or sex characteristics.

 

Features

A SHOW OF PRIDE FOR A DIVERSE AND INCLUSIVE CANADA: This coin is an inspiring statement of support for social progress in Canada, and the hard-fought gains in sexual and gender rights.
PERMANENT SECURITY FEATURE: Also included on the reverse of the coin is the engraved maple leaf, which is both a symbol of Canada and a cutting-edge security feature that ensures each coin's authenticity.

 

Design

The reverse image by Canadian artist Joe Average is a celebration of community, equality and inclusion. The intertwined stylization invites a personal interpretation of the design, viewed through the lens of sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics. The facial traits intentionally reflect gender fluidity and the spectrum of genders; they may belong to two individuals, or they may represent different aspects of one's identity.

The maple leaf security feature is positioned over hopeful rays of light, while the bilingual words "EQUALITY" and "ÉGALITÉ" are engraved on two curved bands. The reverse includes the word "CANADA", the double dates "1969" and "2019" to mark the 50 years since the process of decriminalizing homosexuality in Canada began, and the "DOLLAR" face value. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
